Ignacio Copani - Discoteca (English translation)

Spanish

Discoteca

Si sos morocho no entrás,
si sos petiso tampoco,
feas y feos no pasan jamás...
hay que cuidar la estética, loco.
Si con melena venis
y no esta en onda tu ropa,
nenito, acá no metes la nariz,
volvé a tu casa a tomarte la sopa.
 
Discoteca, no se admite gente absurda,
ni muy negra ni muy zurda,
venga la crema, no la manteca.
Discoteca, si sos fina ahí te encuentro
qué me importa si por dentro
tenés el alma y la cabeza hueca.
 
Si sos judío rajá,
si tenés cara de pobre,
si no te hizo pintón tu mamá,
aquí no entras ni pasándome el sobre.
Si una tarjeta traés
de un apellido de raza,
aunque te odie seré muy cortés:
Pase, señor, esta siempre es su casa.
 
Discoteca, vengan rubios con bronceado,
vengan trastes bien parados
que muestran mucho pero nunca pecan.
Discoteca, pasa el que a mi se me canta
que busquen una bailanta
para las gordas y para las chuecas.
 
La discoteca es igual a este país en oferta,
el que labura no pasa el umbral,
la mayoría se queda en la puerta.

Discotheque

If you're darkie you won't get in,
if you're tiny neither,
ugly people never get in...
gotta take care the look, boy.
If you come with long hair
and your clothes aren't on fashion,
you don't stick your nose here, boy
go home and drink your soup.
 
Discotheque, we don't allow absurd people,
neither too dark nor too left-winged,
up for the cream, down with the butter.
Discotheque, if you're fine I find you there
I don't care if inside
you have hollow mind and soul.
 
If you're jewish get off,
if you have a poor fac,
if your mom didn't make you good looking,
you don't come in even bribing me.
If you bring a card
of a breed surname,
even if I hate you I'll be polite:
Come in, sir, this is always your home-
 
Discotheque, come blondes with tan,
come firm buttocks
who show a lot but never sin.
Discotheque, the one I feel like can come in
may they find a bailanta1
for fatties and bow-leggeds.
 
The discotheque is like this country on sale
the worker can't pass the doorstep
the majority remains at the door.
